Hi guys.. I use thick images at my workplace because we don't have the infrastructure to do wds, lite or zt installs.. we've been using ghost forever I am trying to have windows 8 ask me for a computer name and join a specified domain.. the way i did it before was using MySysprep2 with the variables <computer>% input pc name%</computer> on my unattended, but it looks like MSP2 does not work with windows 8 .. does anyone have an alternative that will allow me to input the pc name before joining an existing domain? needless to say i also have this on my xml file: <component name="Microsoft-Windows-UnattendedJoin" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <Identification> <Credentials> <Domain>student.local</Domain> <Password>something</Password> <Username>domainjoinaccount</Username> </Credentials> <JoinDomain>student.local</JoinDomain> <MachineObjectOU>OU=WorkStations,DC=STUDENT,DC=LOCAL</MachineObjectOU> <DebugJoin>true</DebugJoin> </Identification> thank you for your time.
I have been working for a company for a while almost a year and we have been using Ghost to image the machines. This has been very good and has worked very reliably for the company for many years. However, recently I have been encountering a lot of issues due to drivers, especially since we now have a lot of new Lenovo Laptops and various other models besides Dell now. Basically we have 1 Master Image with every driver on it for all the different models we have about 10 models or so. I really could use the help with this, I have been very quiet but I have read a lot of posts, forums, articles and watched countless videos just not sure what I actually need and if it is even possible. What I want (future) Migrate from Ghost to MDT easily without loosing all the work that was done to make the current images. MDT because managing drivers appears easier and more precise; so the correct model and driver should always be used and installed. PXE Boot / Light Touch or Zero Touch Windows 7 and Windows 8 Imaging Only no XP The Current Setup. Dedicated Local Gigabit Network for Ghosting which includes Server 2003 running DHCP, DNS and Ghost Our Images are stock full of customization and changes. I do not want to re-create / re-install all these applications again. Problems: Drivers get installed on computer that it can't use or doesn't belong to No DOS drivers for lenovo laptops have to remove drive and image manually. Since our images are very customized already with lots of oracle configuration changes that have been made specifically for our environment how can I preserve this image and migrate it to MDT without having to re-do all this customization? Would this even be possible? I have the following software available to me: -Windows Server 2008R2 and Server 2012 -SCCM 2012 don't really want to use it... little big I think! -Windows 7
